Not much has changed in our lounge since my 2019 post, but here are some shots of my newly finished home office/battlestation setup...

First some moody night shots, because everybody likes a bit of LED lighting:






This cabinet is where I keep all my network gear, and my VR gaming gear. That's a DK1 Kickstarter backer card, signed by the (then) Oculus team:


Mass Effect 3 "Earth Alliance" limited edition oversized lithograph (signed by artist, 1/500):


Here is how it looks by day:




More photos in this Imgur album depicting various other lighting schemes.

Some details:

I’m currently migrating my PC to a new case and replacing some older components but, currently it is:
  • Coolermaster Cosmos S (amazing case, lasted me 10 years, but upgrading to a c700m soon)
  • ASUS ROG Strix X99 Gaming mobo
  • Intel i7 6850k @ 4.3Ghz
  • EVGA 2080Ti Black Edition
  • 32Gb Corsair Vengeance DDR
  • Corsair H115i Liquid CPU cooler
  • Corsair HX 850i PSU
Peripherals:
  • Razer Chroma Blackwidow V2 keyboard
  • Razer Chroma Goliathus Extended mouse mat
  • Razer Chroma Basilisk Ultimate wireless mouse
  • Razer Chroma Base Station
  • Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless headset
  • Elgato Stream Deck

The space itself is an outbuilding recently purpose converted for use as my home office. Whilst installing the networking I added a couple of additional 35m cat6a runs back to the house, so that a 4K HDR video/audio signal with usb (for wireless controllers, peripherals etc.) could be piped back over Ethernet to our living room, for comfy couch gaming on a large screen 4K Projector setup. It works great, no noticeable lag introduced.

The whole thing is lit using Philips Hue, and synced to the current desktop wallpaper/app... so the ambiance/mood is constantly changing in the room (although of course that can be set to a static lighting scheme too).

All Razer Chroma peripherals also sync in the same way.

Voice control over most a/v and lighting aspects via Alexa and Harmony.

The cabinets are a mixture of Ikea Besta units, the desktop is supplied from Worktop Express and then cut to size and wall mounted for the floating effect.

Did all the work myself apart from the initial plasterboard skimming.

I posted this on /r/battlestations the other day.
I love this! This is an example of RGB lights done right. The only thing I'd change is the PC case. Something like a white NZXT H700/H710i would fit so well.

Thanks Nintendo. Actually I already have a new case ready to go, I loved my OG Cosmos S so much that I went for a c700m case... it looks amazing. I just need to find time to move all my components over now.

Why? Why did you have to post these With info? Now I’ve discovered Kilian Eng from Cook and Becker and have a bunch of prints watched on eBay.
whoops! Sorry!

I know what you mean though, I already want to get more, but I can’t really reasonably hang more than one more in my modest sized apartment.

What kind of table is that? I'm looking for something similar.
Not sure if this question was for me. If so, it's a couch table that came with our couch (https://www.lovesac.com/product/item/accessories/sactional-accessories/sactionals-table-dark-walnut/2194221). Probably not the best price, and you might find better alternatives. It was just something that came together with our couch set and since we rarely used it, I realized that it was close to perfect for couch PC usage.

Oh wow that first pic really transports you in time. I dig what you've done with it, but it's missing a couple pinball machines for my taste. :)

I just got my new media console last night and built it. Will be actually moving it over and getting tv/consoles set up today hopefully. Will snap a couple pics to contribute.

Thanks! What I really want to throw in there is the arcade1up TMNT cab, but I'm out of space @[email protected] Also I saw arcade1up is bringing out a 3/4 scale virtual pinball table.

My place is starting to really come together, I'm happy with it. Built new media console last night and moved everything in tonight. Now that it's there I need to decide on the table as I previously mentioned it's temporary, but maybe something lower to at least match the height of the stand. Prepped for a new TV purchase in the coming months when I decide on which one.

Before:


After:



Nothing crazy exciting with the computer side, just a black L desk with matching blackness. So instead here's just to the right, some new chairs I picked up along with newer succulents.


I have a bunch of prints to still frame and put up, and now that the TV wall is opened up a bit, once I get a bigger TV I'll decide on what I want to put up there as well.

He used to have a Capcom Impress candy cabinet but some monster bought it from him.

Looking quite cosy, particularly loving the NIN framed poster! And the tiny succulents!

Thank you! It's a studio I'm still furnishing but it's very close to what I had in mind at this point. Saw NIN close to my birthday a little over a year ago and noticed the poster, friend got it for me as his present. I love it. I've got a Tycho print which may be my favorite framed piece I have, I'll snag it if I remember.

Oh we love Tycho over here too, and their album cover sure do make for amazing pieces of art to display, I approve!

Forgive the glare on the TV:



How do you keep everything dust free I feel like every time I step into the living room there's dust already gathering on the tv stand, consoles etc. Im scared to leave the switch out with joycons like that too cause of how easily the joycons get dust and start Drifting afterwards D:

Really love some of this setups in this thread. First time sharing my place - pretty pleased with how it's coming together.

Living room setup - Xbox One X (I switch this between the living room and spare room) and Nintendo Switch.



Spare room setup - Xbox One X
I haven't got around to decorating this room yet, so I'm currently just using furniture from my old apartment. I plan on replacing all the furniture but it's working great for me at the minute. (I plan on moving to all digital next gen - can't be bothered with game discs / cases anymore)

Taste! Great to see a gaming place that doesn't just look like a boring tacky mancave. This is the kind of interior design I strive for myself.

This set up is super elegant. I'm going to use it as inspiration for the future. Where did you buy your furniture and decor?

Oh it's not dust free, I think my phone camera just hit the right angle where you can't see it. We have 2 cats as well so there's always friggen hair everywhere. We picked that flooring and the rug colors so it would blend in a little bit and not be as noticeable.

We haven't had any joycon drift yet, but I do swap between 2 sets regularly.

The dining table and coffee table are from La Redoute and the console table I actually made myself with some hairpin legs from amazon and wood from a local joiner. All the furniture in the spare room is from IKEA. As for decor, we just pick things up as we go along from a range of places, but our favourites are NEXT, Oliver Bonas and Anthropologie.

Discivered this thread a few years ago back when it was on GAF. Seeing all this set ups inspired me to put some effort into my own and now I finally feel comfortable posting it! Everything you see in this pic was bought via either Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace or pawn shops.

TV: 2014 Vizio P Series 50 inch *planning on upgrading to a 55 inch HDMI 2.1 panel sometime this year*
A/V Reciever: Pioneer VSX-90
Speakers: Pioneer Andrew Jones FS22 floorstanding speakers and SP-C22 Center Channel, BIC America F12 Subwoofer. Planning on getting the bookshelf speakers to match the set and use them as rear surrounds.
Console: PS4 Pro *got it for 300 bucks at a pawn shop 2 years ago*
